To date, through the efforts of 150 institutions and 2,700 schools nationwide, reaching more than 80 million children and adults, SaveNature.Org has raised awareness and more than $3.9 million for ecosystem protection to save wildlife and wild places. SaveNature.Org works in 11 countries to preserve the plants, animals and natural communities that represent the amazing diversity of life on Earth.
Sponsor Hands-on Science Education
Sponsor our award-winning environmental education programs in the San Francisco Bay Area - the Insect Discovery Lab and Edible EdVentures. The Insect Discovery Lab lets students hold amazing insects from around the world, while learning about the extraordinary diversity of insects and arthropods and their key role in the web of life. Edible EdVentures inspires kids to consider Earth-friendly food choices and teaches the connection between food and ecosystems through hands-on demonstrations, interactive lessons, and scientific experiments.
Your donation helps support scholarships for local underserved schools that will inspire stewardship and reconnect children to a love and appreciation for the natural world. Please contact us if you'd like to schedule a presentation for your event, school, or birthday or if you'd like to donate to our scholarship fund.
Adopt an Acre of Wildlife Habitat
SaveNature.Org partners with in-country conservation organizations to adopt prime wildlife habitat - from the rainforests of Costa Rica, Panama and Brazil to the deserts of Namibia to biodiverse coral reefs around the world. You can help protect homes for wildlife and support innovative conservation programs with SaveNature.Org’s in-country partners. For your Adopt an Acre or Adopt a Reef donation, you will receive an honorary deed with the amount of habitat you helped save to display or to send as a gift to a friend. Save a home for wildlife today!
Please contact us if you are interested in partnering with SaveNature.Org to adopt acres as part of your business charity program. We also partner with hundreds of schools, zoos, museums, aquariums, and other educational institutions to do grassroots fundraising for our Adopt programs. Our Adopt an Acre deeds make great gifts, as well as an amazing legacy for bequests.
